How far will Rose go to keep her promise?

The recent Strigoi attack at St. Vladimir’s Academy was the deadliest ever in the school’s history, claiming the lives of Moroi students, teachers, and guardians alike. Even worse, the Strigoi took some of their victims with them. . . including Dimitri.

He’d rather die than be one of them, and now Rose must abandon her best friend, Lissa—the one she has sworn to protect no matter what—and keep the promise Dimitri begged her to make long ago. But with everything at stake, how can she possibly destroy the person she loves most?

Blood Promise is the fourth book in the amazing Vampire Academy Series. Richelle Mead has delivered yet another truely captivating story to sink you teeth into. Blood Promise picks up a few weeks after the shocking cliffhanger in Shadow Kiss and we see Rose on a quest to find her true love and do the hardest thing that she has ever had to do yet.

The Story is set away from St Vladimir's school on Rose's journey and its a freshing change in the series. Although we are still up to date on the activaties happening at the school due to Rose and Lissa's Bond. So we still get to know whats happening with most of the other character's and we get to see few new ones thrown in to mix things up. However, even though we are introduced to new characters like Dimitri's family when Rose travels to his homeland, essentially the story is developed around Rose and Dimitri's relationship and a hard decisions Rose has to face.

There is one aspect that I really didn't like about this book and that was Adrian, well the lack off Adrian. We do get to see him pop up every now then in Rose's dreams but I would have loved to have had him more involved in the story line.

Overall, yet another fantastic installement by Richelle.
